Lefler, W. S., was born in Montgomery county, a son of William and Nancy Lefler, and was educated in the district schools. His first business undertaking was in the grocery line in Amsterdam, which he conducted for seven years. He came to Saratoga Springs in 1887 and was engaged in the grocery business here until 1893, when he entered into the real estate business in partnership with Mr. S. H. Myers and the firm still exists. Mr. LefLer married Anna Close and they have three children: Mabel G., Josiah C. and Jennie E. The Leflers are of Holland descent, Mr. Lefler's greatgreat-grandfather having emigrated from Holland and settled near Tribe's Hill, Montgomery county, in the ante-Revolutionary days.
